with virtually nothing. >> distinctly unhappy house speaker john boehner on fox news yesterday. meanwhile, the white house put out a statement today arguing the republican plan lowers tax rates for the wealthy and quote, sticks the middle class with the bill. so with 29 days to go until the fiscal cliff, what would it take to get a deal? joining me now, men on opposite sides, grover norquist, president of americans for tax reform and robert reish, former secretary of labor for president bill clinton and the author of "beyond outrage." none of the three of us are beyond outrage, grover norquist, which is why i keep having you back. the situation it seems to me as an impartial observer here is that both sides have now made fairly ludicrous offers that they know the other side is never going to accept in a million years. that does beg the question, grover, why bother, given that both sides know where they need to move, why the games? >> well, it's not clear that both sides know. the week after the election, president obama was asked do you have to have the higher rates or could we have deduc
to negotiate with somebody that you like. >> i think the president should play more golf with john boehner. he never played one game with him, if that. let's turn to more cherry matters. the rfk center, raising money to help people around the world. tell me about it. >> first of all, i'm bidding on you. >> i'm one of the prizes. >> you are a prize. >> you can go to www.charitybuzz.com search piers. and the current bid is $70 million, to bring four people to that studio for the cnn experience. >> you have competition against a lot of people. anderson cooper is up there, too. >> is he beating me? i will not be happy if he beats me. if you are watching, get on the website and bid higher. i'll give you a cup of tea, whatever you like. and there's a meet and photo with president bill clinton. a signed guitar from taylor swift. >> and how about this, fly fishing with paul volcker. if you can do that, you can buy the other auction items. >> charitybuzz.com. i've got to beat anderson cooper. finally, let's come to the car accident you had. >> yes. >> a strange case, where you had taken an ambien sleep
and john boehner, when they can't be bothered to talk to each other. so what did you discover? let me start with you, governor herbert. what was your take on the two meetings? >> well, we were honored to be invited. i think too many times, the states and governors have been overlooked and underappreciated and almost a second thought when it comes to some policies made so i applaud jack's leadership in getting us together in a bipartisan way through the national governors association. i thought we were well received. i think the president and the speaker and majority leader was appreciative of our insight and our concerns about them going over the fiscal cliff. >> right, but i mean, jack markell, that's all very well, i'm glad you all got on so swimmingly but what is actually going to get done here? there are 28 days to go until we fall off this cliff and the american people are frankly sick and tired of waiting for a bunch of politicians to try and sort something out and just play politics, just get on with it. >> well, we had a productive conversation with the president and his team as wel
'm afraid the politics will make it harder. >> his problem is for john boehner. his own party is split. we're seeing splinter groups coming out, senators, governors, congressmen, saying -- >> from both sides. i'm prepared to go for more taxes. not exactly. this is what interests me and may prolong the negotiations. there's a lot of people in the republican party, and the democratic party, particularly in the senate, who said $250,000 is not really a rich man. maybe a rich man in lincoln, nebraska. but it's not a rich man in new york city or los angeles. and therefore, the rates, the tax rates, which they want to go from 35% to 39.6%, maybe you're going to have to raise the threshold to $500,000, $600,000. maybe you're not going all the way to 39.6%. maybe you go to 37%. >> this is negotiation, isn't it? >> yes. >> i had newt gingrich last night. he almost shut down the government as the speaker, with bill clinton. but the second term, they did get stuff done. both of them used to them me, they used to throw everybody out of the room, and get it done. what worries me about the boehner/obama
